    We had a terrific time! Our guide Mehmet was great, and the tour was very well organized. There are not too many people per group, which I think is good. However, I definitely recommend not eating breakfast before!

    I loved every second of this cruise!

    The views of Istanbul are incredible and the staff was amazing as well. They are very attentive. They brought out a variety of snacks, desserts, and drinks to the guests. They eve brought blankets because it gets a bit cold on the water. The boat was the perfect size so you never felt like you were crowded by other people.

    We were celebrating my daughter's birthday and they surprised her with a beautiful and delicious chocolate cake and they even played happy birthday. Everyone on the boat got cake too.

    Everything exceeded our expectations

    Besides the stunning views, I loved the fact that everything was punctual and organized as per the description of the tour. I didn't have much time in turkey so this specific tour was perfect for me and I got to see a lot of Cappadocia.

    My tour guides Augus and Mehmet were very polite and professionals. I totally recommend them.

    Likewise, The Cappadocia Hotel in Urgut was incredible. All staff were so eager to make me feel comfortable. The breakfast is quiiite a lot and amazing.

    Thank you!

    The cruise was a blast! Although everyone was seated so close together in 1 long table without much space to eat comfortably, the entertainment compensated for that. Mezze and bread basket was already cold as it is already served on the table by the time people arrived. Would be good if they kept everything fresh. Overall, it was a good experience.

    Very lovely dinner cruise. Good food and lovely entertainment. It’s a bit late though and ends late and I wish the photographers were open about how much they would charge for taking photos of us

    The whole tour from start to finish was fantastic. All bookings from tour guide to transport was very professional and on time.
    The service responded promptly to every question we had before and during our trip. Tour guide was considerate and informative and did not promote tipping. No hustling.

    The guide was very knowledgeable and friendly. Humorous at time and very helpful. He loves his culture very much and was very subtly eager to share with us.

    Istanbul is beautiful and chaotic too. Will go to the country for a much longer period in future.

    Great experience! We were picked up from our hotel on time and soon boarded the yacht. The service was great, they served soft drinks and snacks and you had the option to buy alcoholic drinks. Our guide Kerem was very knowledgeable and entertaining and made the experience fun. We highly recommend this tour if you want a more private experience instead of the big boats.

    The Bosporus is gorgeous and stuffed with history - 5,000 years of history. I highly recommend this excursion not only for the history lesson but also for the excellent service and good food.

    The day started a bit shakey when we met our guide at our hotel (Sura Hagia). We didn't climb into the van, instead he made us walk nearly a mile. From there we picked up one more guest than headed to the boat, however the van stopped half-way there to fill up on gas. Why would you stop to get gas when you have a van full of guests? Why not gas up before pickup?

    That was the only negative, the rest of the day was wonderful. For clarity sake, you do not actually cruise into the Black Sea, the boat doesn't even pass the third bridge. Still, this was my highlight of Istanbul.

    We had an amazing time with the crew of Istanbul Party pub crawl Team. First time in Istanbul and we (me & my husband) booked this tour. Everything was beyond our expectations. The crew and the team’s members were lovely, fun , energetic and with great energy. From start to the end, it was full of spunk and vibes. We had a great night life experience here with the team. Much recommend for all the tourists, who want to experience the night life of Istanbul, must book this crew.

    Thanks & Cheers !

    I liked the organisation before coming on board. On arrival I was quickly brought to my seat but then the waiter had difficulty with checking if I was a customer with or without alcohol. A simple hot meal was served. The shows were good even though I seated far away and asked not to approach. I did take many nice pictures outside though.
